One of the first signings made by new manager Alex Totten, Steve was clearly seen by him as a safe pair of feet, as he had previously played under him at St Johnstone.
Profile by Craig Benson
He quickly established himself as a fan favourite at Rugby Park, not so much for his prowess in front of goal, but for his high work rate and provision for others. A dip of the shoulder, a twist of a hip and his marker would be tied in knots, leaving him free to pick the perfect pass for the Paul Wrights, Tom Browns or Colin McKees of the world.
When he did score himself, more often than not they were absolutely vital ones. Whether getting us back on course against Hibs, or, like in the featured game in this post, saving the day in the cup against Morton.
A genuine old school pro, who never hid & gave his all at any club who required his services. His career spanned 14 years & 7 clubs. East Stirlingshire, Queen of the South, St Johnstone, Kilmarnock, Partick Thistle, Livingston & Cowdenbeath on loan. All needed his services and all got 100% No matter how many (St Johnstone), or inexplicably few (Thistle) games the managers played him in.
